WEST MIDLANDS INTER CLUB RELAY RESULTS
Octavian Droobers club members travelled to Nesscliffe Army Camp, north west of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, to the annual relay event, this year organised by Wrekin Orienteers. The flat open areas with military structures and small woodland areas produced some fast times.
Four OD teams achieved 1st places and came back with trophies: the Mini Relay team of Pippa Smart, Florence Lunn, Josie Smart and Tabitha Lunn; the Junior Men’s team of Oliver Lunn, Oliver Flippance and Felix Lunn; the Open Men’s team of Alistair Powell, Alistair Gardner and Matthew Elkington; the Super Veteran Men’s team of Trevor Simpson, Gerry Spalton and Dave Marr
Taking second places were two teams: Kirsten Strain, Carolyn Marr and Anne Straube in the Open Women’s Trophy and Tony Feltbower, Barry Elkington and Stuart Heaton in the Veteran Men’s Trophy.
The next summer evening club event takes place on Wednesday, July 22 at Ryton Pools Country Park, Bubbenhall, with starts from 6 until 7.30pm. Full details about start times, courses and costs will be on the club website. Runners and walkers of all ages, 5 – 85 years, and abilities will be welcome to come along to try out this outdoor adventure navigation sport. Help is available to all newcomers. A large scale map and electronic timers are provided; bring a compass if you have one. To find out more see website www.octavian-droobers.org or call 01926 632189.
